Life imitates Bumper Sticker: “Bernie – Because f**k this s**t”

Nevada Democrat Convention descends into chaos as Bernie supporters allege rigged vote.

From Oregon Mike:

Trump should have thought of this bumper sticker . . .

. . . spotted this afternoon in Eugene, Oregon. (My wife snapped the picture.)

 

Bumper Sticker - Eugene OR - Bernie Because Fuck This Shit

In another case of life imitating a bumper sticker, the Nevada Democratic Convention devolved into chaos after Bernie supporters accused Clinton supporters of rigging a procedural vote seeking a recount as to rejected pro-Bernie delegates.

RCP reports:

Adryenn Ashley posted several live videos (below) from inside the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, where arcane secondary rounds of the delegate selection process of Nevada’s Democratic caucus erupted into chaos Saturday night. Bernie Sanders supporters demanded 64 rejected pro-Sanders delegates listed in a “minority report” prepared by their campaign be allowed to participate in selecting delegates for the national convention.

DNC leaders refused to reconsider their decision not to allow this, adjourned, and fled the building amid a chorus of boos; leaving hotel security and local police officers to handle the angry Sanders supporters.

Earlier in the day, the Sanders camp objected to several of their delegates being disqualified from voting for administrative reasons, and booed Sen. Barbara Boxer when she called for unity. “If you’re booing me, you’re booing Bernie Sanders,” she told them. “Go ahead, boo yourselves out of this election.”

A member of the rules committee called the act of disallowing votes for purely administrative reasons a violation of the spirit of the values of our nation.

We may be looking at the first four way presidential race since 1860. Popcorn, anyone?

    Starting to look like the 1968 Dem Convention and the split in the GOP is starting to look tame by now.

    1980: Reagan, Carter, Anderson, Barry Commoner.
    2000: Bush, Gore, Nadar, Buchanan.

    I don’t think the RINOs will be able to field a strong candidate. First no one seems to warm to the opportunity. Maybe Ryan if he looks like he will be “primaried” or Sasse after his censure by the Nebraska RNC. Maybe Mittens if it looks like no one else will, which would be interesting a major candidate from one election running as an independent in the next. I doubt think that has ever happened. ( I think there were several elections between Teddy R running as a R then as Bull Moose. )

    Second I don’t think they will find sufficient money backers to make a candidacy viable, and those that might be willing being tapped out.

    It will be interesting to here people who argued that a Trump independent run was impossible, now argue that a RINO candidacy is viable. That sort of thing requires an energized base, and so far the only energy I’ve seen from the RINOs are Romney, and “Babs” Bush.

The woman said “Democrats are crooks!” I wonder where she got her first clue…

Hillary: What Difference Would It Make?

My understanding is that the procedure was supposed to start at 10:00 but the Clinton supporters got there at 9:30 and started early. leaving the Sanders supporters severely disorganized.

Reminds me a bit of the plowing of Arthur Dent’s house in Hitchhiker’s Guide…. Or Harry Potter’s trial in one of the later books.

It is kind of ironic that Bosxer a Californian is playing a big role in a Nevada Dem convention.

    More irony, the leadership hiding behind the police…..”DNC leaders refused to reconsider their decision not to allow this, adjourned, and fled the building amid a chorus of boos; leaving hotel security and local police officers to handle the angry Sanders supporters.”

Earlier in the day, the Sanders camp objected to several of their delegates being disqualified from voting for administrative reasons, and booed Sen. Barbara Boxer when she called for unity. “If you’re booing me, you’re booing Bernie Sanders,” she told them. “Go ahead, boo yourselves out of this election.”

Babs Boxer: Arrogant no matter where she is or who she is with. At least she is consistent.

Somehow the Republicans are to blame for this. The MSM/DNC axis says so, and they always tell the truth…
